Welcyon, Fitness After 50 Expands
With Three New Franchise Deals
Welcyon, Fitness After 50, a Minneapolis-based chain of health clubs specially designed for adults over 50, has signed three separate franchise deals to open three clubs, expanding its system to seven locations.
The new clubs will be located in Burnsville, Minnesota; Boise, Idaho; and Las Vegas, Nevada.
These latest agreements are part of the brand’s continued effort to provide a welcoming and personalized fitness environment where people 50 and over can achieve their best health.
Welcyon clubs feature a structured fitness program consisting of strength and cardiovascular training, as well as stretching and balance exercises. Specially trained fitness coaches guide workouts on equipment that uses air instead of weight stacks to create resistance, build strength and minimize the risk of injury. The equipment is also powered by Smart Card technology, allowing members the ability to track their individual workouts and progress.
To date, Welcyon has four clubs open throughout the Midwest and hopes to open at least 10 additional locations nationwide over the next 12 months. The company’s long-term goal is to have one million members, a realistic aim when you consider more than 100 million Americans are 50 and over and make up the fastestgrowing health club consumer group.
